Thankful Thursday

The work marathon began for my hubby at 8:45 Tuesday evening when he headed into work to do his part for the move of some equipment. He said it went smoothly but he didn't get home again until 3:30 AM yesterday morning. After maybe 2 1/2 hours of sleep, he was up again and out the door to be back at work in case any problems arose from said equipment move. Some problems did arise and he didn't get home again until 9:30 last night. Right now, Andy is sleeping and that's pretty unusual...its 9 AM! But he was exhausted!

Today I am thankful to God for:
  • His protection of my husband on the travel to and from work as well as the time working while Andy was so tired
  • His provision of a boss who told Andy to work from home today...and not be in any hurry to get up to do it!
  • His provision of this job, a good job, for Andy when so many are struggling with unemployment
What are you thanking God for today? Each Thursday of 2010, I'm sharing my thankfulness along with Kim of The Upward Call and other friends. Please join us!

Update: I love the way sharing these good gifts from our gracious God magnifies our recognition of the blessings He provides! I just visited Rosemary at Whatever is Good and was reminded to thank Him for the restorative sleep that He's provided for Andy as well. Thank you, Rosemary!

Oh, it's so hard to work until the wee small hours! Hope your hubby feels refreshed and rested again soon.

Andy's work sounded so grueling! I'm glad it's over and he's getting some good rest. Nice that he could work from home today.

And you're welcome, Dorothy!
